Raffi Torres wants to return to San Jose


Make no mistake about it: Raffi Torres hopes that his time with the San Jose Sharks won’t end up being short.

The 31-year-old was clear about that point to CSNBayArea.com’s Kevin Kurz, who believes the team should re-sign him.

“It’s not going to be hard to make a decision to stay here. They know I want to,” Torres said. “It’s a great group of guys in here, starting with Joe [Thornton] and right down to [Logan Couture], and the goaltending. It’s just a good group of guys, and it would be a good place to win here.”

Joe Thornton is definitely on board with Torres playing for San Jose some more.

“We hope he comes back. He’s a great player,” Thornton said. “He’s a great addition that Doug made … Just a real good guy. A good guy, a good team guy. Just a fun guy to be around, as well.”

As long as you keep your head up.
